Amber Heard Says 'They Didn't Want' Her In Aquaman 2

Amber Heard Says 'They Didn't Want' Her In Aquaman 2

The actress claims that Warner Bros. has scaled back her role.

Actress Amber Heard has claimed that Warner Bros has scaled back her role in Aquaman 2 as a result of her legal battle with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The second Aquaman film, titled Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, has been delayed until 2023 but many fans of the film have called for Heard to be cut. An online fan petition currently has 4.1 million signatures and calls for the actress to be removed from the sequel film.

However, producers for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom stated that they wouldn't react to fan pressure. They have claimed that they had to 'do what's right for the film'. Whilst Heard has been brought back for the follow up film, she has confirmed her role is 'pared back'. 

During the ongoing defamation trial between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard, Heard confirmed Warner Bros. had included her in the second film but the role was more minimal. While on the stand, Heard stated that Warner Bros. originally did not want the actress back in her role as Mera.

However, Heard told the courtroom while on the stand that she fought hard to be included in the sequel. She claimed that she had been given multiple scripts, with subsequent versions taking away scenes with her character, including action sequences.

When asked about her role, Heard stated: "I had to fight to – I fought really hard to stay in the movie. They didn’t want to include me in the film."

When asked about if she had been included in the second film, Heard explained she would feature but in 'a very pared down version of that role'.

She added: "I was given a script. And then given new versions of the script that had taken away scenes that had action in it, that depicted my character and another character, without giving spoilers away, two characters fighting with one another. They basically took a bunch out of my role. They just removed a bunch."

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp remain embroiled in a defamation lawsuit (

The case between Amber Heard and her ex-husband Johnny Depp has resumed in Fairfax, Virginia, where Heard is fighting accusations of defamation from Depp.

As the case continues, the court heard from the Aquaman actress as she told the court she and Depp had a 'safe word' to use in arguments they had during their marriage.

Both Heard and Depp have discussed conflict they faced during their marriage, and today Heard testified the pair used the word 'couch' as a safe word during their fights.

While being questioned by her lawyer Elaine Bredehoft, Heard said the word was considered a 'truce' when the pair were fighting.

The case continues.
